The special ways Set for Life winners celebrate $20K Day
Do you sit and watch your bank account when you know you have a payment coming in? Our Set for Life First Prize winners sure do! They have all admitted they count down to the 15th of the month – their Set for Life prize payment day, or what they love to refer to as ‘$20K Day’.
From stress-free scrambled eggs to woohoo moments, Set for Life First Prize winners have revealed to us the secret rituals and customs they’ve adopted to celebrate receiving $20,000 in their bank accounts on the 15th of every month for the next 20 years.
The game launched in August 2015 and since then there have been over 40 Set for Life First Prize winners across Australia. Collectively taking home more than $201 million over two decades.
For those who’ve won ‘$20K on Replay’, marking the 15th of each month has become an important part of their lives.
One Sydney winner revealed he and his wife go out to breakfast for scrambled eggs on the 15th of each month to plan how they will ‘keep living life to the fullest’ with their prize.
“Every time I get the monthly payment, I feel relieved and stress-free. Winning has given us the freedom to do and spend as we please, so each month we go out to breakfast for our stress-free scrambled eggs!” he laughed.
Three years after her win, a Melbourne mum described how she and her husband still crowd around her computer on the 15th to check their bank balance.
“Every month on the 15th my husband and I log into our bank account just to see it in there. We still get so excited,” she said.
“We even circle the 15th of each month in our calendar and every year on the anniversary of our win, we go out with the family for dinner to celebrate how lucky and Set for Life we really are!”
For one Queensland man, seeing the $20,000 drop into his account on ‘$20K Day’ meant that winning feeling never went away.
“Every month I have a little ‘woohoo moment’. I still can’t really believe it until the money lands in my account every month – it’s awesome,” he said.
“I have always been a positive person, but all of my dreams can now become a reality. Every day I remind myself how lucky I am. We can pretty much do what we want to do.”
While our winners have used their prize in lots of different ways, from weddings and new homes to family trips to Disneyland and early retirements, all describe the enjoyment they derive from living free from financial stress.
Receiving their windfall in large monthly lumps as it means they can happily plan lots of exciting activities for themselves and their families knowing they’ll get $20,000 each month for the next 20 years.
A big part of being a Set for Life First Prize winner is the anticipation and thrill of having a $20K Day every month, so it’s understandable many winners have adopted their own special ways of celebrating the monthly milestone.
We can’t wait to hear what our winners did to celebrate this $20K Day!
